Testimonials from previous headliners and patrons….
“February 21, 2015 is an important day in the history of country music. An old friend reappeared! After years of silence the Old Dominion Barn Dance is back, and in a mighty way. Me and the Fabulous Superlatives considered it an honor to be a part of the grand re-opening of this treasured country music institution.
My love and congratulations to Donna and all of the Old Dominion staff on an absolutely marvelous day. Long live the Old Dominion Barn Dance’ –
“I have to applaud Donna Meade for keeping traditional country music alive in the great state of Virginia. She’s an old friend and fellow artist form Nashville and when I heard she was turning the lights back on the Old Dominion Barn Dance, I just had to raise my hand to come and play. And boy am I glad she was so kind to host the John Anderson Band in Richmond. I know Jimmy’s proud and rightly so, because Donna understands what were all trying to do out here and I hope everyone supports her.”
“I was blown away by the reception that Donna Meade [Donna Meade Dean-Stevens] gave me at the Old Dominion Barn Dance. The band and I had a blast and enjoyed both audiences being part of the action. The Henrico Theatre was wonderful and the whole presentation of the show was first class all the way. I know Donna cares about the Barn Dance and country music and hope she’ll have The Ronnie McDowell Show back again real soon. Thank you old friend.”

I want to thank you for making it possible for CrossRidge residents to have the opportunity to attend the Old Dominion Barn Dance show week before last. I have not talked to anyone who attended, but I am sure they enjoyed the show as much as we did. So, I offer the following testimonial.
“My husband and I attended the Old Dominion Barn Dance performance on March 13, 2021, and were not disappointed. We are country-music fans and have missed, what we refer to as “real country music”. We saw and heard the authentic country music at this performance. We were very pleased at the talent of local singers, cloggers, and chuckled at the corny jokes associated with country. The time flew as we sang, laughed and tapped our feet to the various segments of the show. A very memorable afternoon.”

I wanted to take the time to thank you all for a wonderful day at the Beacon. My Mother loves Country music, at 85 years old, and being in the house for a year(Covid) she needed an outing. I have to be honest, I was never a fan of Country music. However, I was so impressed by the show !! The music, the talent and the dancers were amazing. Thank you all for a beautiful day and a memory that I will always cherish
